- Keep fruit fresh: Use the freshest fruit you can in your red, white, and blue desserts. Berries like raspberries, strawberries and blueberries, have the best color and flavor when stored correctly. Read more about keeping berries fresh.
- Make individual servings: Consider making individual servings instead of a large cake or pie. This not only makes serving dessert at a party easier, but it also allows guests to easily take their dessert and mingle without having to sit down with a plate and fork.
- Use premade ingredients: Don't be afraid to use store-bought ingredients like cake mix, cookies from the bakery, or store-bought frosting. This can save you time and effort in the kitchen and still result in a delicious dessert. Then just add your own creative touch to make it your own.
